So no water testing ,and do a 100 % water change ,so any good bacteria that you're fish and corals need goes down the sink and then start again every week with new water ,well up to you my friend it's you're tank but you are opening you're corals up for problems ,if it works for you and corals are ok then so be it but I wouldn't recommend doing things that way you run the risk of losing stock.just saying .Dave
Hk_fuey,ratvan,That's what I was trying to get across about water parameters and bacteria on the filters etc ,guess didn't explain very well,and there wasn't any mention at the time about adding rotifers etc,now what you say would make sense adding that all I was getting at was it's a big water change ,and I did say if it works for you then that's fine ,no attitude,as far as different things work for different people I ran a marine tank using deionised water and salt ,mixed my own up for 3 years successfully,was told not good idea won't work ,that was with fish and anemone,everybody has their own take on what does and don't and what should and shouldn't work,unless you actually try it yourself you don't know,Dave
I run mine old style. Mix with tap water (TDS 72-85) undergravel filters, couple of wave makers and no skimmer. Fish, softies and display macro algae, all doing well.A clean and quiet tank. As you said. "Different strokes for different folks."
If you can take the macro algae out, you should be able to just pull the GHA off. It's likely to keep growing once it starts unless you reduce nutrients and/or light, or get something to outcompete it.
